I have an 8th grade student whose family fell on some hard times earlier this year. Once the school was aware, the staff was asked for donations to give to the family. The family was very happy and appreciative of the gifts. Unfortunately that student came to me this morning requesting to brush her teeth before her first period. (I keep toothbrushes, floss, etc. in my office). She asked if she could tell me something that she didn't want anyone else to know. I said as long as there is no harm involved I would try my best. She stated she has no toothpaste at home and listed some various other health and beauty items she is lacking. Her mother has been unable to work recently due to an illness. As much as I would like to call upon my staff and ask for their help, I want to maintain the trust that student has in me. I have no problem picking up the items myself and giving them to her. My question is, is it appropriate? Also, what if her mother is offended or gets upset with her daughter for confiding in me? I'd appreciate any thoughts or opinions.
